Fire + Earth includes over 350 pieces of ceramic art by 57 Canadian artists. You can explore these pieces by selecting an artist above, or through the Index of Works which provides a visual preview of a selected artists work or a straightforward list of all the pieces in the exhibition.

A selection of the original works from Fire + Earth has been presented in QuicktimeVR, which allows you to examine a piece from any angle. The virtual exhibition also includes biographies, exhibition history, and additional works by the original artists.

In About Fire + Earth you can view photographs of the exhibition as it was installed in a variety of galleries. Jonathan Smith and Shinjin Ozaki, the co-curators, offer their thoughts on how they selected the original exhibition of 61 pieces. A PDF catalogue is also available for browsing off-line.

Methods + Materials provides newcomers to ceramic art the chance to learn more about how ceramics are made. Videos and images are used to further explain many of the techniques involved.
